Boasting the assistance of the Navajo Service and the Untied States Office of Indian Affairs, Another to Conquer was targeted at Native Americans and features stunning location shooting. Nema and Don, made orphans by tuberculosis, are left on the reservation following the wisdom of their science-fearing grandfather and the community’s respected leader, Slow-Talker. Robert, their neighbor and friend, has gone away to school—forsaking tradition, according to his detractors—and has learned the scientific ways of the white man. He has also learned that he has TB and, through rest and treatment, is cured. The film progresses as a battle between traditional faith and contemporary medicine. Medicine wins and Slow-Talker, a convert to its ways, becomes its spokesperson. Directed by Edgar Ulmer.

Subject: To the labratory!
Just ok exploration about indians and Tuberclerosis. The indians were at first reluctant to be treated for the disease mainly because it was a "White Man's Disease" and they didn't want to deal with "White Man Solutions", but this film says it's all right! What choice do you have? The acting is pretty bad in this one, not just by the indians, but the white folk are horrid too.
